Founder's Greeting Message

Dear Clients & Associates:

It is my pleasure to share with you that our Firm’s members are thoroughly primed and ready as ever to score greater legal victories for our clients and associates. As we move in ever-more complex and difficult economic conditions and environment, I remember the simple but clear prescription of success from John D. Rockefeller Jr., American financier and philanthropist, who said that “The secret of success is to do the common thing uncommonly well.”

It is a trite observation that legal services are becoming commoditized or something so common that it can be handled by generative AI but our Firm still believes that the simplest way to attract and maintain clients’ trust and relationships is to provide timely and responsive legal services within budget that will always meet or surpass their expectations. This a commonly accepted way of a legal service provider but we have doing this uncommonly well for more than forty years since the Firm’s founding and under the leadership of Kensaku Yamamoto, Managing Partner, the Firm will continue to deliver top-notch legal services uncommonly well by closely working together toward our strategic goals with the collective skill, determination and hard work of every member of the Firm.

The foundation stone of our success is the Firm’s highly dedicated and high-quality workforce who are constantly collaborating with one another, and giving our best. That is why we source the best, brightest and most motivated talent from all corners of the globe to join our trailblazing multi-disciplinary practice team. And together, our Osaka, Tokyo, Fukuoka, Fukushima and Nanjing offices, can only be better, improve, and be the best IP and legal service provider in Japan, to stand out and survive in this difficult and challenging environment.

Our clients and associates rely on us to critical to saving or improving people’s lives around the globe like in the R&D-intensive pharmaceutical and medical device industry. We protect and serve innovations that span all industries, all economic sectors from all corners of our inter-connected innovative world. That is why our clients and associates can expect to receive no less than world-class quality legal services from us as we continue to strengthen our mutually strong relationship, improve our abilities and competitiveness to deliver legal outcomes that will match and exceed everyone’s expectations.

In closing, allow me to thank our clients for being so faithful, reasonable, and responsive over the years. We greatly look forward to continue providing you our customary quality counsel, ideas and services for many more years to come.

Thank you very much for your continued support!

Shusaku Yamamoto, Esq.
